The project is part of the winter aid programme implemented by the ERC to help people affected by cold weather in 25 countries and took place through the coordination between the UAE Embassy in Rome, the ERC, the Italian Red Cross, civil defence authorities, other official authorities and non-profit organisations.

The ERC has intensified the programme this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, therefore, it is important to create acceptable conditions for the beneficiaries, as well as protect them from flu and other winter diseases.
